Mothers Day Poems

Before I Was Myself, You Made Me Me

by Dimitri Shostakovich

Before I was myself you made me, me

With love and patience, discipline and tears,

Then bit by bit stepped back to set me free,

Allowing me to sail upon my sea,

Though well within the headlands of your fears.

Before I was myself you made me, me


With dreams enough of what I was to be

And hopes that would be sculpted by the years,

Then bit by bit stepped back to set me free,


Relinquishing your powers gradually

To let me shape myself among my peers.

Before I was myself you made me, me,


And being good and wise, you gracefully

As dancers when the last sweet cadence nears

Bit by bit stepped back to set me free.


For love inspires learning naturally:

The mind assents to what the heart reveres.

And so it was through love you made me, me

By slowly stepping back to set me free.

Mothers Are as Total as the Sky

by George Frederic Handel

Mothers are as total as the sky;

Older than the earth, and more enduring.

They're rooted in our hearts like ancient trees,

Halfway down to seething lava seas;

Emblazoned on our sail, and on our mooring.

Returning home, we dwell within their sigh:

So maddeningly rich, so reassuring.
